Need your stories

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm writing a new chapter for the next edition of Our Bodies, Ourselves. It's on planning for pregnancy or adoption. I want to be sure to include some perspectives on what it's like to plan for parenthood from lesbian mamas. If you're willing to share your experiences (both for my edification and possibly to be quoted in the book), please email me at smook @ comcast. net (no spaces). Many thanks!

Hmm... Maybe I phrased this badly? No one is responding, but I would really like to hear from you. OBOS includes a lot of quotes and personal stories, and I'm uncomfortable having all of them come from straight women. However, my close gay friends don't have children yet, so I can't ask them. I'd be really appreciative if anyone here would be willing to share their experiences with me.

Rachel,

I appreciate your desire to represent queer parents in the new OBOS. Your question is HUGE though! Are there more specific aspects of planning for parenting you would like people here to speak to? (Most of us could probably easily write a book onplanning to parent!)

Sounds like a great project. What about bi women and our issues with parenting - is there space for these perspectives? Or trans-parenting (sounds like a super-power worded that way! )?

best,

Megan
